Project I like to try this year
For this months blog Carnival from the Jewelry Artisans Community we need to write about a project we like to try this year.
Well that’s a difficult one, because there are so many things I still have to learn and want to learn too.
I already started with one of them. Branding my jewelry designs and website. 😀
I always wanted to make my own packaging materials and it never was more then a nice piece of paper and ribbon as a gift wrap.
In December I saw a youtube channel and blog from a lady in England who makes the cutest boxes and envelopes you can imagine.
So I tried to make some of the boxes with the tutorials she gave and before I knew it I was drawing and calculating to make my own designs.
I never thought it was possible for me to like something other then making jewelry, but there is.
These first 2 months of 2017 I have been making boxes, gift bags, candle boxes, punched out butterflies and flowers.
Here is the collection of boxes that I made for the branding project of my jewelry.
All the other “fun” boxes I have made and will be making will be placed in a separate gallery over time.
One of the other things I want to learn is silversmithing, not sure if I will get to that this year though.
Of course there are so many other, techniques in jewelry making that I might not have heard of and I think that when I do stumble upon those that I would want to learn them too. 🙂
